A stray no longer, Smiley is ready to find her perfect match. Although she’s considered a senior, Smiley still has a lot of pep in her step.

Smiley loves her daily walks and play time, and can do the stairs like a champ. This active girl will do best in a home that’s not ready to slow down any time.

We think Smiley is 11 years young, weighing about 30 lbs.

Meet her at Muttville in San Francisco on Rescue Row! You'll fall in love!

Dogs and knock knock jokes

Despite the photographic evidence of dogs sitting around a card table, they cannot play poker. Have you known a dog who can bluff without her tail giving her away? 

My dog tried looking away to hide her real feelings, but that tail thumping, even slight, was a huge tell. You knew she was excited about it being dinner hour.

Tell me you're not the only one not surprised this joke involves a cat?

Ziggy knows every day is National Dog Day

Why does Ziggy the senior English Bull Dog know every day is National Dog Day when she's around? Because everywhere this adopted dog goes she gets a lot of love, from her family to strangers sitting next to her on a bench.

Senior dog adoption celebrate national dog day

As a confirmed dog lover, I think every day is National Dog Day too. And until we're ready to adopt again, I'm celebrating the hell out of this holiday with as many dogs, especially the older senior sweethearts, as I can!

If you don't have a dog, consider marking this day by adopting or fostering a dog in your area.
